Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 55:8


55:8 For - If any man injure you, especially if he do it greatly and frequently, you are slow and backward to forgive him. But I am ready to forgive all penitents, how many, and great, and numberless soever their sins be.

    I believe God is giving us a secret on how to live an abundant life. We are supposed to to have a well shaped mind sch that with good thoughts mixed with the word there is manifestation of abundance in our lives. The word be refered as water or rain that comes down in the 10th verse if it rains in the ground with seed will cause that seed in the soil to germinate. Let there be good seed in you

    This shows that money is on the line, but when god puts his word, come without money without price, there's no bill to that because freely is the salvation that we are given, we don't receive because we are dominated by the spirit of progress and self gratification. Come without money or without price it's freely given , the children of Israel with all the wealth from Egypt could not buy water in the dessert.Speak to the rock!Moses was told and water came without money and without price. God will ask what we did with our money buying things which satisfied not, Peter and John at the gate of Beautiful, Silver and Gold they didn't have but what they had... "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth raise up and walk."
  • Because God is all, he is Omni. This can only let us as believers know that we will never be able to fully understand the true fullness of God. We are limited because that the way he intended for his children to be so that we will depend on him.
